1. Trim chicken wings and drumettes of excess fat. I prefer them "Frenched" which just means removing the excess cartilage and skin from the 'handle' of the drumette. 2. Place wings in a bowl and add brewed coffee, water, 2 tablespoons of salt and bay leaf. Cover and marinate in the fridge for 6 hours to overnight. 3. Mix remaining ingredients, except maple syrup, in a small bowl. Adjust seasonings as preferred (i.e. more or less heat). 4. Preheat oven to 350ºF. 5. Drain and rinse wings. Pat dry with paper towel. Toss lightly in spice mixture ensuring wings are evenly coated. 6. Arrange wings on baking rack (with lined drip pan underneath); cook for 15 minutes. 7. Baste lightly with maple syrup and then cook an additional 10 minutes. 8. Baste a second time lightly with maple syrup and then broil for an additional 3 -5 minutes to caramelize sugars.
